What Price The Wall?

WE all have heard the grand scheme to protect the homeland from the invasion of the “benefits” snatchers….that scheme would be that all impressive WALL.

The big question is where will we cough up the cash to pay for this monstrosity without raising taxes?  Or just how will this effect the security of the homeland?

According to the “fat man in the bathtub” this, the Wall, will go a long way to protecting the nation from the influx of those rabid bad guys waiting at the border to come flooding in to cause chaos and mayhem….

First, you mental midgets that think this is a good idea do realize that this country has water on 3 sides, right?

Personally, I think that the Wall is a dumb idea from the inception….great slogan but has little practical application.

Then I saw a report on one way being considered to help pay for this abortion….

The Trump administration, searching for money to build the president’s planned multibillion-dollar border wall and crack down on illegal immigration, is weighing significant cuts to the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and other agencies focused on national security threats, according to a draft plan.

The proposal, drawn up by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), also would slash the budget of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which provides disaster relief after hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters. The Coast Guard’s $9.1 billion budget in 2017 would be cut 14 percent to about $7.8 billion, while the TSA and FEMA budgets would be reduced about 11 percent each to $4.5 billion and $3.6 billion, respectively.

(WaPo)

Think about that for a minute you mindless dolts.

Budget cuts for Coast Guard and TSA….entry points far greater than that damn land bridge that you are so concerned about.

There is already a push back against this sort of “solution”…..

House Republicans and the nation’s largest association of retired military officers have called on the Trump administration to scrap a reported plan for a major cut in the Coast Guard budget, in part to pay for the proposed wall on the Mexican border.

“We cannot defend our homeland and continue critical security missions without the U.S. Coast Guard. It is as simple as that,” Rep. Frank LoBiondo, a New Jersey Republican and member of the House Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, said in a statement.

“Whomever is advising President Trump that the service could do more with even less is detached from the facts and reality on the ground,” he said.

I realize that it is early in the process but to consider this line of thought is truly moronic….but what can we expect from a group that has NO idea what they are doing?

Guess that check from Mexico bounced, eh?

  1. You know the Joker in Chief: no facts or reality sink in. Of course we reduce funding for the Coast Guard to build the wall! We didn’t promise to secure the much longer coasts, just the Mexican-US border with an idiotic wall that the low information, often low intelligence supporters will think makes them safe from “bad dudes”…. If it is a $21 billion wall, that would buy 21 B2 bombers, tres kool batwing mothas that are mucho impressive compared with a dumb wall. Of course, we don’t need 21 more batwing bombers, but neither do we need the wall!

  2. Guess that check from Mexico bounced, eh? SNORT and ha ha!

    I’d heard about the Coast Guard but had not paid attention regarding the TSA, like you said guardians for far greater boarders and terrorists threats. I despair and go back in my shell. ~~dru~~

  3. All of it is the direct result of having in excess of sixty million people fall for the bullshit of a man who believes his own bullshit, no mater how far removed from reality. I’d say this is a case of just desserts for the American voting public….I don’t even have to use any epithets/euphemisms to point out how plain stupid it is, and, by concatenation, they are…. It speaks too plainly for itself…

    gigoid, the dubious

  4. Although that wall is a crazy idea, there is a part of me that wants to watch it being built. Just so I can then watch it fail, I suppose. Walls have never kept anyone out. He needs to learn more from history.
    Best wishes, Pete.
